Top 10 Ways to Use ClassVR
ClassVR is the first complete VR solution designed specifically for schools, with standalone headsets, intuitive gesture controls, a huge library of content, and an easy-to-use teacher management portal. Based on what teachers are saying, here’s a few of their favorite ideas for bringing virtual and augmented reality into the classroom.
Bring Physical Geography to Life Immersing your students in an image of a landscape and asking them to look for clues about how the landforms might have changed over time is a brilliant way to unlock the world of physical geography. Tap into Emotion and Empathy You know that old saying about walking a mile in somebody’s shoes? Giving students insight into situations they could never experience can be particularly powerful. Try guiding a class through war-torn streets and listen to the passionate discussion that flows afterward. Look Inside the Body Augmented reality makes it easy to bring anatomy into the classroom in a safe way. Students can get up close and personal with a beating heart. 3D models offer the perfect opportunity to visualize the organs and systems that make our bodies work. Experience Other Cultures Sometimes, it’s the everyday aspects of life that can offer students a key way to begin understanding cultures that are different from their own. What is it like inside schools around the world? What about weddings, festivals and other events? Virtual reality allows your students to experience what’s unique about every culture. ClassVR is a complete VR and AR system for the classroom. It provides an affordable, engaging and immersive experience for students of all ages.

Take a Closer Look Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality give students the opportunity to examine things closely, whether that’s an intricate machine, an historical artefact or an underwater environment teeming with life. With this technology, students can take time and find key details to unlock new connections between ideas. Unlock Your Students’ Creative Writing Potential Particularly powerful for younger students, “being” in a story setting can have an amazing impact on written work. Students’ descriptive language comes so much more naturally when they’re immersed in an image or scene. Immerse your Students in Artworks Virtual and augmented reality offer fantastic opportunities for teaching art in schools and colleges. Imagine holding The Thinker by Rodin in your hands, turning the sculpture round to see every angle of the detailed 3D model. VR is the ultimate visual medium. Get your Topic Off to an Unforgettable Start VR and AR add a fantastic opportunity to inspire and delight students of all ages. Kick-start a Space theme with a visit to Mars or see the Earth springing up from the page. Take your students inside Ramses’ tomb to get your Ancient Egypt topic off to a captivating start. Get students engaged in Science right away! Empower Students to Add Their Own Content The ClassVR system has been designed to work with standard file formats, so your students can experience the thrill of taking a 360 photo or video and sending it straight to the headsets. Teachers and students alike are getting excited about the creative possibilities across the curriculum and the potential for easing transition between school phases. Take Inclusion to the Next Level ClassVR is controlled using basic gestures that can be easily mastered by most adults and children. The ability to upload content easily also makes ClassVR perfect for those students who need a chance to get used to new environments. Capture footage on a pre-visit and send it straight to the headsets, allowing your students the time to get accustomed to an unfamiliar place.
At the heart of ClassVR is a teacher-friendly portal, providing all the necessary content and tools to successfully deliver engaging lessons to your students. For more great lesson ideas, contact PowerUpEDU, and we’ll show you how.
